WASHINGTON — An FBI badge was inside a parked car one moment and gone the next.

News of the missing  badge first turned up in a blurb on  Thursday in a weekly section of the Washington Post that lists crimes in Fairfax County, a suburb of Washington.

The blurb simply noted the street , the 6600 block of Little River Turnpike,  and said: “An FBI badge and credit cards were stolen from a vehicle.”

Bud Walker, spokesman for Fairfax County Police,  said the incident occurred on May 9 at approximately 5:15 p.m. The vehicle was broken into in a shopping center parking lot. He said there was no damage to the car, but the door appeared to have been forced open.

Walker declined to say whether the vehicle was an official FBI car, but said the investigation is continuing into the missing badge.  The FBI confirmed that the victim was an FBI employee  from the Washington area.

“The reality is FBI employees, like anyone else, can and occasionally do become victims to property crimes such as theft and break-ins,” said Paul Bresson, a spokesman for the FBI at headquarters.
